International 1941 T-6

This 1941 T-6 crawler carries two revolutionary birthmarks. The most noticeable is the Raymond Loewy-designed sheet metal, a smooth, timeless skin penned by one of the great industrial designers of the 20th century. The other mark of distinction on this line comes from brethren, so to speak. The T-6 is a family member, and shares a basic design and lots of parts from its siblings, the Farmall Model M and W-6 tractor lines. All used the same engines, but the chassis were quite different. The crawler chassis was heavier than the tractors, weighing about 7,000 pounds dry. This T-6 was restored for Randy Raschein of Tangent, Oregon by his sons as a surprise gift.
